Classics and Chrome Car Show Returns

The 2017 Classics and Chrome Car Show will return this spring after a two year hiatus.  This year, the show will take place on May 6 and 7 at the former Penney’s Store in Machesney Park Mall.

Averaging more than 10,000 spectators annually, this celebration of automotive history has raised more than $500,000 for tuition grants and scholarships, given away over $400,000 in raffle prizes, and entertained more than 50,000 spectators.

Classics and Chrome is the largest indoor car show in Northern Illinois. It features more than 120 unique vehicles that span over 100 years including pre – and post-war classics, sports cars, muscle cars, hot-rod and custom cars, exotic and race cars, specialty cars and motorcycles. Due to its growing reputation as a premiere car show, the event has attracted many high profile exhibitors and cars.

Tickets to the show can be purchased at the door.  If you are interested in entering a car in the show, go to our Classics and Chrome website at classicsandchrome.com.
